Editor: Brighton Tattoo Convention

On a sunny, clear but ball-acheingly cold Sunday, BarLifeUK went to Brighton.

The racetrack had been taken over by body-modders, Teddy Boys and rocking billies for the weekend, with dozens of great artists from all over the UK inking up the punters.

I was pretty sure a few familiar faces would appear in the crowd, and sure enough I bumped into Sahara Bar’s Dean MacGregor on his way to filling up some more skin-real estate. The boys and girls on the Sailor Jerry stand also furnished me with rum, which was, of course, excellent.

Resurrecting the tradition of Life magazine in the 60s, we bring you a mini photo-story (but with images of considerably poorer quality) from the Brighton Tattoo Convention.
